Fort Berens Dry Riesling 2018

Lillooet, British Columbia, CanadaThere’s some history here; the 2018 Riesling is the first 100 percent Lillooet VQA wine. It’s quite a tribute to a lot of hard work done by the FB team, and work that was no doubt done in the face of constant doubters. The attack is fresh and lively with bright lime, green apple, orange, and a finish of stony minerality. Congratulations to Rolf de Bruin and Heleen Pannekoek for their pioneering spirit. Bravo Lillooet. The riesling clone is 21B, also known as Wiess 21, after Hermann Weiss who brought the clone to Vineland Estate in Niagara in 1979. The origins of the clone trace back to the Mosel region in Germany.Tasted: 11 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 18.99 winery direct, private wine shops, Save-onFoods Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
